My husband and I booked a room at the Schlosshotel Steinburg for one night as part of our honeymoon. Although it was a bit hard to find, and located a bit far from Wurzburg itself, we enjoyed our stay very much. The room was beautiful, the service great and the scenery amazing. The dinner we had was fancy (and priced accordingly) and delicious and the breakfast (included in room price) was superb. In our opinion, the Hotel's location and ambiance make it more of a place to stay for a few days and relax, rather than a spot from which to explore the area surrounding it. We will definately return to the Schlosshotel Steinburg in the future for a longer stay.

Room Tip: We picked one of the "Castle" rooms, considered the standard, and the room was well beyond our expectations.

I decided to try Schlosshotel Steinburg due to the Lonely Planet and Frommer’s Travel Guides. Both the guides describe the hotel as a wonderful stop on the Romantic Road. Well, it’s a good choice, but not as much the guides indicate. It has wonderful views of the city, the Main river and the vineyards, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast decent. The hotel itself is a castle whose foundations date from the 13th century. But if you want to visit Würzburg - and of course you will - keep in mind that the hotel is situated 10 km from the city, and without a GPS it’s a bit confusing to reach it. But the experience worth having.

Room Tip: Ask the rooms with Main river views.

From the internet, we were expecting a much higher quality of hotel. For European hotels, and probably for Wurzburg, this was not a terrible hotel, but definitely not a four star property.

To begin, you must have a car to stay here, I'm not sure how you would do it without one. It is impossible to find, you must travel down a narrow dirt road up a hill to get there. The place itself is interesting, more of a gothic or medieval castle than a royal one, but I found that atmosphere fun. The terrace and views are fantastic, as you are high up above the city. The major cons- the room and bathroom was terrible. Very outdated and ridiculously small. I saw pictures on the website of rooms, and this was nowhere near what they show. The bathroom also could not fit two people in it comfortably at the same time. No air conditioning (common I know for Europe), so we had to keep the window open so as not to suffocate which would have been fine except the noise was unbearable. You would think being up so high that noise wouldn't travel that far, but the major Bahns are right below and the train runs along parallel to them so it is a double whammy, especially when the ICE comes through.

We stayed at two fantastic properties before and after this in Munich and Frankfurt so perhaps we were spoiled a little, but I was most disappointed because I felt very misled by the website. It is probably right on par with most mid level European hotels (I would put it at a 2 or 3 star), but for the price we paid it should have been much better. From TripAdvisor I realize I should have stayed at the Best Western Rebstock even though it was more expensive, but I thought a castle hotel would be better then a Best Western. Although not a disastrous choice, I would not stay here again.

The hotel is high on the hillside surrounded by vineyards overlooking Wurzburg. It is not really within walking distance of the city because of its elevated site but the views of the river, city and Marienberg Fortress are spectacular. There is a very nice terrace area where you can have drinks, tea, coffee and also eat if the weather is good. The staff are very polite and smile a lot which always helps.

Our room was overlooking the city. It was spacious and even had a small balcony with chairs and table. The en-sute had shower but no bath. The mini-bar was free (mostly soft drinks) as was the internet connection (wired). However, surprisingly in a four star hotel there was no air-con which meant we had to leave windows open, as it was unseasonally hot during our stay. Unfortunately, the noise from the railway lines in the valley carries and freight trains run throughout the night! So if this is a problem for you might want to ask for a room at the rear of the hotel with no city view.

The hotel has a nice indoor pool which opens out on to a grassy terrace with sun loungers in good weather.

The restaurant food was excellent with a good selection at breakfast and some really good cooking in the evening. The local wines are also well worth trying especially the sparkling ones. The restaurant inside is quite formal but sitting outside on the terrace was very relaxing with the great views of Wurzburg.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and felt the hotel was of a good standard and had character. By the way it is not really a castle - it was built as a hotel. The site is quite spread out and there is no lift to the upper floors but staff carry your bags to the rooms.

Plus points: very helpful and welcoming staff and good food.

Room Tip: Bear in mind the possibility of train noise if you are at the front of the hotel.

Thought the internet misleading on this hotel, we were expecting a 4 star spa hotel arrived at a dark, gothic style rather grubby pile at the top of a hill ! The views of Wurzberg were super, but our room very small & dated, ensuite bathroom tiny & probably 1970's ! Compared to the price we'd paid for 2 previous stopovers very overpriced !! Only plus point the restaurant & staff, very friendly & helpful, otherwise not a hotel we'll return to.
